Don't waste your time on this one. Acoustics are so terrible it sounds like you are listenting to the show through a tin can.

Grampa's Chili at Henflings Firehouse Tavern - Ben Lomond, CA 12/21/02

Saturday night arrived without rain or incident and we shuffled over to Ben Lomond to see Grampa's Chili. When we arrived they were still
getting set up. I forgot a patch cord for the soundboard so I had to set my mics up. Oh well.
They started promptly at 9:30 and played a short 40 min set. They've only played 2 shows this year and unfortunately it showed early on.
The first few songs while good, just didn't click but they ended the set with killer Eric's Project Day before running off for a smoke break. Lots of folks arrived late but all the Dawgz were making their way in.
The second set really opened up and was much more cohesive and peppy. After a sweet Afoot they segued nicely into the Johnny Cash classic,
Folsom Prison Blues. As the dance floor filled up they managed to keep the energy level high and everyone was gettin' their groove on. A super funky intro jam on Sassafras was a big highlight and the set closing Stuck in the Middle got everyone singing including the bartender. They even threw in some older tunes like Falling Out and Waiting For Jerry to keep the hardcores happy. (I Was!)
Things were coming together very nicely and the jams were getting more intense. After a singalong HBD to a friend's 30th they got down to business with a scorching Bridge of Choice. This segued nicely into another favorite In Time We'll Know. The band was fully in sync and really took their time opening things up and exploring the songs.
Cecie's Waffles was pretty big and excited the crowd to dance even harder. They closed the 3rd set with It Waits which hasn't been played in over 6 years. We couldn't let them leave without an encore so they came back for a rousing Lick the Air to send us off which they dedicated to Mr and Mrs Kim Kent. They ended up playing 3 hrs and once they warmed up, the crowd egged them on to new places. These guys played a killer show and the best one I've seen from them in 2 years.
You NEED to see these guys!
